Michael Smith is a consensus 4-star tight end and No. 6 at his position in the 2024 class. He is scheduled to announce his commitment on January 24th at 12:30 EST/ 11:30 CST. Tight end has always been an interesting position, as it can either be an x-factor for the offense or forgettable. With the addition of Ty Lockwood in the 2023 class, I'd like to see if the reputation of Alabama tight ends can grow to the level of Crimson Tide receivers, DBs and maybe even running backs.
